One of my favorite things is taking photos of my children. Life goes by so quickly, and it’s always been important to me to have those memories to look back on. While I have over 19,000 images on my phone of our life at the moment, there are so few of myself in the photos with them.
I decided it was time to schedule a professional photo shoot with my youngest as an early Mother’s Day gift to myself. I love the idea of owning heirloom family photographs for our family to cherish for years to come.
My daughter and I recently worked with PhotosByGlenna. Glenna is a local mom and international award winning photographer, specializing in fine art child and family photography, and came highly recommended.
Before meeting, Glenna set up a meeting to discuss what we should wear, and the location setting. She explained how important it was to have outfits that coordinated, advising against wearing certain colors, and what types of textures work best. When choosing the setting for the shoot, Glenna went to great lengths to find the perfect backdrop of cherry blossoms at various local parks, as she fully understood the aesthetic I was hoping to achieve.
Upon meeting, Glenna immediately made my seven-year-old feel at ease, making her laugh, relax, and have fun. We worked through various poses as she captured candid moments between us. We weren’t restricted to one or two settings, as we have experienced in past photo sessions. Glenna lead us through the park, taking every opportunity to uncover and capture a magical moment.
After our session, we met to look over each photograph, picking out which were our favorites to print (it was not easy to narrow it down!!). PhotosByGlenna’s portrait session is followed immediately by an ordering session. Whether you choose stunning wall portraits that you can walk by every day, a folio box you can share with loved ones when they visit, or an album that sits on your table for easy browsing, she can collaborate on which products you want so you get the most out of your investment. Plus, you will receive matching digital versions of your portraits.
